Is Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones: House of the Dragon?

Will the Mother of Dragons appear in HBO’s newest show?

Wondering if Emilia Clarke will be on HBO’s Game of Thrones: House of the Dragon? We’ll tell you everything you need to know about her character’s role in the story and what the actress has previously said about the prequel.

Is Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones: House of the Dragon? Answered

Because the show is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, the actress, Emilia Clarke, will not be in House of the Dragon. Moreover, if you look at HBO’s cast listings, you won’t find her name there, nor is there information about Daenerys Targaryen.

The story’s premise will still reveal more details about House Targaryen, the Mother of Dragon’s ancestors. In the trailer, we see her relatives: Rhaenyra, Daemon, Viserys, and many others, as they fight against each other for the legendary Iron Throne. Like Daenerys, Rhaenyra believes that she should be the Queen of Westeros, despite everyone’s issues with her being a woman and Daemon’s quest for power.


Besides the two relatives’ common goals, they also have very similar facial characteristics, including the trademark Targaryen hair, sharp eyebrows, and blue eyes. As a result, many fans had to do a double take when looking at the princess in the trailer since she almost looks identical to Emilia Clarke’s version.

Last year, the Hollywood Reporter asked Clarke if it was weird to see some new faces of the Targaryens, and she replied, “It’s very surreal.” She continues about how Daenerys’ storyline didn’t have family members present, so it was exciting for her to see the character’s ancestors in the show.

Although Emilia Clarke may not be on the House of the Dragon, she has advised the latest cast by telling them not to dye their hair blonde as she had done for Game of Thrones’s final season. She also wishes them well with series and states, “But good luck to them is what I would say. I mean that.”
